Public Health England (PHE) has released a tool to calculate the return on investment for sexual and reproductive health interventions for young people under the age of 25 in the UK.
The tool aims to help public health commissioners to measure the effectiveness of interventions specific to their location.
The tool adds to existing evidence that sexual and reproductive health interventions are highly cost-effective, with the provision of extra contraception along with oral emergency contraception having a return on investment ratio of £15.6 for every £1 spent.
